Storyline

Undercover FBI agent Gracie Hart shows no signs of having any femininity in her demeanor or appearance. Generally a bright and capable agent, she is in trouble at work when she makes an error in judgment in a case which results in a near disaster. As such, one of her by-the-books colleagues, Eric Matthews, who has never shown any inclination of thinking outside the box, is assigned to lead the high profile case of a terrorist coined The Citizen instead of her, while she is facing possible disciplinary action. Gracie pieces together the evidence to determine that The Citizen's next target will be the Miss United States beauty pageant. The pageant represents everything that Gracie abhors. Despite Gracie's mannish demeanor, Eric, with no other undercover female agent remotely fitting the demographic, assigns her to go undercover as a pageant contestant to see if she can flush out The Citizen, who is perhaps one of the other contestants. Although the pageant administration, led by former ... Written by Huggo

Goofs

At 1hr 29min 54sec the view of the audience shows perhaps the first 8 or 10 rows wildly applauding. All the rows further back appear motionless as if they are the cardboard cutouts mentioned in the commentary. Pausing the film at this point reveals exactly this, as the characters are not lit in the same way as the rows in front of them. (There are no highlights, it's just flat like wallpaper.) See more »

Quotes

Victor Melling: In place of friends and relationships, you have sarcasm and a gun!
Gracie Hart: Oh, *I* have sarcasm? When every word that comes out of your mouth is dripping with disdain?
Victor Melling: Ah! That is because I am a miserable, grumpy elitist - and that works for me!
Gracie Hart: You know what? I don't have relationships because I don't want them, an-an-and I don't have friends because I work 24/7. And you have no idea why I am the way that I am.

Bullock Scores
12 May 2004 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

How many crapola pageants have I seen in my life? A ton of meaningless models parading around in swimsuits claiming to want to help the deaf orphans of the world while posing nude in some off the wall porno magazine. If you have ever seen - A dethroned beauty queen - A hacked off runner up - Or an incredibly stupid talent, then you just have to watch this movie. It is so incredibly hilarious at putting every single stereo-type out there. I remember watching Miss America years ago and Miss Indiana had a cow when she was named first runner-up. I also remember some pretty lame talents like "I want to be a secretary" and these girls were top ten on national tv. William Shatner and Candice Bergen are A+++++++++++++ in this movie. Watch it and laugh for days.
